  Programming Lang: C
  Description     : Crossplatform serial port handling library

A minimal, cross-platform shared library written in C that is intended
to take care of the OS-specific details when writing software that uses
serial ports. It supports Linux, Windows, Mac OS X, FreeBSD, OpenBSD,
NetBSD, Android, and possibly other OSes.

Supported features include port opening/closing, reads/writes in either
blocking or nonblocking variants, port configuration (baudrate, parity,
stop bits, and so on), controlling certain signals (DTR, RTS, others),
OS-independent error porting, and port enumeration (on OSes where this
can be done).

Note: This lib will be required by the next libsigrok upstream version,
but libserialport is completely independent of sigrok, i.e., it can and
probably will be used by other software projects too in the future.
